Inversion Table Benefits

The list of potential inversion table benefits is discussed below. Some have been researched, while others haven't. Potential users need to discuss inversion therapy with their physician or chiropractor to see if it's appropriate.

Proponents include rehydration of the spinal disc as one of the inversion table's benefits. Rehydration improves the disc's sponginess, creating a cushion for spinal bones. Inversion tables are also thought to reduce nerve pressure, realign the spine, relax tense muscles and increase flexibility.
